Texas Troopers Arrest Cartel Member Smuggling Illegal Aliens

A known cartel operative from Mexico was arrested for smuggling illegal aliens into Texas, authorities say.

The bust unfolded in Webb County on March 6, but the Texas Department of Public Safety (TxDPS) just released information and footage this week.

A TxDPS Brush Team based in Laredo was called to help assist Customs and Border Protection (CBP) agents who were using an aircraft to track a group of illegal aliens who had entered a private ranch.

โ€œTroopers identified Fidel Rosas-Gutierrez, of Mexico, who was wearing camouflage clothing, as the foot guide & a confirmed Northeast Cartel (CDN) member. He was arrested for criminal trespass & human smuggling,โ€ TxDPS spokesman Lt. Chris Olivarez explained in a statement.

Rosas-Gutierrez reportedly confessed to smuggling two illegal aliens who were with him and said he had been paid $100 per person.

The illegal aliens, both Mexican citizens, were charged with criminal trespass but it is unclear if they were taken into TxDPS custody or turned over to Border Patrol.

Lt. Olivarez published body cam footage of the arrest but it can only be viewed on X.

Days later, TxDPS apprehended another 16 illegal aliens who were found on a private ranch in Maverick County.

The group was comprised of eight males and eight females hailing from Colombia and Ecuador.

They were all charged with criminal trespass by the state of Texas.

Chaos unfolds constantly along the U.S.-Mexico border, as Infowars regularly reports.
